Oral and micro-history develop their physiognomy - in the sense of assuming a name and a status as a complex of practices, places and networks of relations - by the late Sixties of the past century, but possess long and multiple roots, most of them widely shared. In order to reconstruct their genesis, the A. sketches a piece of social history of Italian historiography from the Sixties to the Eighties, trying also to enucleate the various hermeneutics underlying oral and micro-history, together with their own distinctive peculiarities. Finally, drawing on some fruitful research experiences he shows how these newborn disciplines can give way to a profitable collaboration.
Keywords: Oral history, micro-history, local history, methodology of historical research, social history of historiography, history and autobiography
